Just visited Bimble and the guys there explained and sorted my ancient motorhome's solar arrangement and saved me money in the process - they could have taken much more off me but didn't, and that's priceless! Highly recommended.
Everything went perfectly from the online purchase, to the delivery updates, and finally to take delivery of what turned out to be a superb quality great value solar panel, exceeded all my expectations, nearly 10% higher output than rated, made several more purchases since, highly recommended retailer for all your solar energy needs.
Great range of products,I found exactly what I wanted at a competitive price.

The Steca PF 240 is the most efficient DC energy-saving refrigerator ever to be developed. It can be used as either a refrigerator or a freezer. It can be run from solar direct or a battery.
The Steca PF 240 are fully programmable. The inside temperature and each of the other configuration values can be set by the user. They are therefore perfectly suited for all DC applications including even the refrigeration of medicines in hospitals. Thanks to the latest A+++ energy efficiency class, together with optimal electronic control and an RPM control of the compressor, it is possible to ensure that the energy is used extremely efficiently. This leads to significant cost reductions.
This product stands out for its user-friendliness, thanks to a large digital display with setting options, the highest standards of quality and reliability and a long service life. The refrigerator or freezer is easy to clean as it has a sealing plug on the bottom for draining water. This maintenance-free appliance can work with an input voltage of either 12 V or 24 V.
Can be run of only an 80W solar system, see our packages for a suitable system to run this fridge.

Brand New 110Ah Sealed Vented Lead Acid Battery (Terminal options at foot of this text)
The Technology – Sterling’s high integrity valve regulated lead acid (VRLA) batteries operate as a starved electrolyte system. The electrolyte is limited to the amount that either is absorbed in the battery plates or wets the fibres in the separator. The resulting system allows gases produced during overcharge to diffuse from one plate to the other, and to be recombined back into the electrolyte.
This recombination creates a closed system, thus reducing the release of gases into the atmosphere under normal discharge conditions.
Since the electrolyte is recycled, there is no need to add water to the batteries. This reduced maintenance and leads to a longer life battery in a clean and compact container. They can be installed when flooded batteries are impractical.
110 Ah (20 hour rate)
Features & Benefits
Tank formed construction allows for individual plates to be inspected prior to battery assembly, eliminating manufacturing defects. Plates are fully formed guaranteeing 100% capacity on delivery.
Sterling’s unique construction and sealing techniques ensures no electrolyte leakage from case or terminals, allowing batteries to be positioned on their side.
Excellent recovery from deep discharge.
Low self discharge – approx 3% per month.
Not restricted for air transport – complies with IATA ICAO special provision A67.
Impact resistant ABS case and cover.
Industry standard footprints for easy field replacement.
Charging: (25°C / 77°F)
Standby use: Float charging voltage 13.50V to 13.80V.
Top up charge: Product in storage (ambient temperature) requires a top up charge every 6 months. Apply constant voltage at 2.40 volts per cell, initial charging current should be set at less than 0.1 CA for 15 to 20 hours
Standby use: 3 - 5 years.
Cycle use (approx):
100% depth of discharge 200 cycles
50% depth of discharge 450 cycles
30% depth of discharge 1000 cycles
Comes with bolts.
Alternatively you can have a terminal post using this pair of terminal adaptors

54 CELL DELTA 295W
295W MONOCRYSTALLINE SOLAR MODULE
The Triple Black DELTΔ SERIES 54 cell module from Perlight has proven extremely popular in the UK due to its sleek looks and diminutive size.
It is completely black with black busbars, a black back sheet and a black frame, which when installed in arrays, offers a more uniform appearance, enabling PV modules to integrate into new and existing buildings without necessarily making the array the focal point.
Not just aesthetically pleasing, the 295W Delta Black Monocrystalline module has PERC technology which essentially enables to improve light capture near the rear surface and to optimize electrons capture.
This module continues the trend from Perlight of well made, good looking products that offer outstanding value for money.

Victron 30A MPPT Smart Solar Charge Controller, Max VOC 100V, 12 or 24 Volt battery
A solar charger gathers energy from your solar panels, and stores it in your batteries. Using the latest, fastest technology, SmartSolar maximises this energy-harvest, driving it intelligently to achieve full charge in the shortest possible time. SmartSolar maintains battery health, extending its life.
The SmartSolar charge controller will even recharge a severely depleted battery. It can operate with a battery voltage as low as 0 Volts, provided the cells are not permanently sulphated or otherwise damaged.
MPPT: Ultra Fast Maximum Power Point Tracking
By constantly monitoring the voltage and current output of your solar (PV) panels, MPPT technology ensures that every drop of available power is rinsed out of your panels, and harvested for storage. The advantage of this is most noticeable when the sky is partially clouded, and light intensity is constantly changing.
Remote Monitoring and Control
Remotely control and monitor the extensive features of your SmartSolar MPPT charger with built-in bluetooth by pairing it with your smartphone or other device via VictronConnect. If your installation is connected to the internet with a GX device, the Victron Remote Management Portal (VRM) provides access to the full power of your MPPT, anytime, anywhere; both VictronConnect and VRM are free to use. For remote installations - even when there is no internet connection nearby - you may be able to monitor your MPPT by connecting the GlobalLink 520.

Ideally 6mm solar cable max - for bigger units with bigger cable click here
Unit best used for housing 1 x AC RCBos, string fuse holders and fuses up to 32a as opposed to DC Din Mount breakers.
Best practice would be to use this unit with no bigger than 6mm square cable and appropriately sized breakers if you are using it with glands for a water tight fit. If you are using it in an environment that is already dry and dust free the use of glands may not be necessary.
This is an empty unit, you must add the breakers you need to your cart as well, see related items tab above to see the breakers that fit.
You will also need suitable cable entry glands - please see related products tab.
